    Got my first two eggs today! The girls are 24 weeks, not sure which of the 8 laid them since I am at work all day.

    Here are pics:

    In the nesting box of course they only used one box!

    They'll get there. My red-stars have only missed a day in the two + weeks that they've been laying. The other girls though.....well that's an entirely different story [​IMG] We won't even talk about the three EE's [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Enjoy those eggs! [​IMG]

    I actually want to eat them for dinner, but they are so small I think I might have to suppliment with a store bought egg.... [​IMG]
